Leap of Faith Community Church

Our Pastor

Rev. Artis Glass, Jr

Senior Pastor

“My prayer for you is that the God of all grace anoint you with fresh oil and His precious Spirit illuminates the Word as you read. May He empower you to effectively communicate to others the vibrant hope that He has given you to preserve the struggles that you have overcome and continue to overcome. Furthermore, I pray that your home be a reflection of the joy and peace that God has promised to all of His children who follow Him. I bless your children, the fruit of your body. I speak life into your marriage, your ministry and your mission.”

“As you lay down at night, I pray for more than sleep. I pray for rest. Rest in him and arise refreshed for I need you. Your prayers, your support and your love are important to us. So I pray you take care of yourself.”

Pastor Artis Glass, Jr.

Pastor Glass has taught Bible studies at home, work and in the Baptist Church for over 22 years. With God’s help and blessing, I have been privileged for those years to teach on most of the Old and New Testament books as well as topical studies on the “Black Man in the Old Testament” legacy of the Ancient Hebrews, the Historical Jesus and the Mythical Christ, Prophecy, Witnessing and Jesus’ Teachings (parables).

Key Passage: Proverbs 29:18; Ephesians 4:11-12

“My desire is to see Christians mature in Christ Jesus so they will remain faithful and persevere in an increasingly hostile society, being salt and light, while bringing others to salvation and making them genuine Disciples of Jesus. To that end my goal is to equip and shepherd the Saints of God through the expository teaching of God’s Word with practical application and illustrative examples so that they might grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and their ‘Joy might be full.’ “
